"The whole point of taking picture is, so that you don't have to explain things with words"
- Matt Hardy
Growing up as an army child can either make you an extrovert, someone who will probably have friends all over the country or a recluse like me. I grew up as an introvert, with almost no friends. I would spend my time either riding horses or playing sports.
My mother would always devote a wall to her brother's photographs while most others would be embellished with her paintings. This was my wonderland, the space that spoke to me the most. It gave me ideas, stories and shared secrets with me like no one else did. This is where my love for pictures started.
Unlike most of my cousins who would want to be posing for the camera I was always intrigued by what happens inside of the camera. This inspired me to explore the nuances of photography. My uncle, Abhishek Sharma taught me the basics of photography when I was sixteen.
My dad bought me a point and shoot camera which used to work with film rolls, and I started clicking random pictures of my dog and nature with it.
I was so passionately drawn to photography that I joined the Symbiosis School of Photography, Pune. There, with the best of faculty like Mr. Vishal Bhende who was the first Indian to achieve Adobe Expertise certificate, I got introduced to commercial world of Photography. I started developing an interest in Fashion and Food Photography.
At the end of the third year I did my specialisation in both the genres.
I am thankful to my parents for believing in me and letting me pursue this field of art.
Life in frames & frames in life, all my memories I remember as Pictures.
